Navratras is one of the holiest festivals celebrated across the country. It is seen as a harbinger of the festival season in India that culminates with Diwali. ‘Navratri’ literally means nine nights and nine forms of Goddess Durga. People throughout India and Nepal observe fast for nine days and worship nine different incarnations of Goddess Durga. It is very difficult to decide what to eat during Navratras. Now that Navratras are here, we at Khurki decided to share a list of food items you are allowed to eat during these fasts.

Flours and Grains

You can eat singhare ka atta (water chestnut flour), kuttu ka atta (buckwheat flour), rajgira (amaranth), vrat ke chawal (barnyard millet), arrowroot flour or paniphal flour and sabudana (tapioca pearls).
